Portland Mercury

Dear readers,

We need your help. The coronavirus crisis in Portland is a major threat to the Mercury's ability to keep the city informed. We pride ourselves on having navigated many storms in the world of independent local media, but this time is different.

90% of our revenue—from advertising, ticketing fees, and our own events—is directly tied to people getting together in groups. The coronavirus situation has virtually eliminated this income all at once. At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we're asking for your help to support continued coverage or everything happening in Portland. You can make one-time or recurring donations. We can't say enough how much we appreciate your support. Thank you.

Confinement Online Film Festival

Fri May 22, 8 pm
This is an online event · Online
$15 - $25
Funny films, sad shorts, first responder documentaries, anxiety spirals (think Trader Joe’s meets Walking Dead), homeschooling horrors, pot-influenced journeys, films about being trapped with an ex (or in-law)—all of these have a home at CoFF! Watch a collection of films sent to us from around the globe and see what (and how) everyone is doing in confinement. $500 Prizes will be awarded, and you will help determine whose short films will win those prizes in our three categories: Most Creative, Funniest, and They Lost Their Goddamn Mind.
